Biography

Great songwriters are said to reveal themselves through their work; their candor and transparency of soul is the key to the listener’s empathic heart and the culture’s admiration. But the lions of country songwriting, idolized and covered in magazines as they are, can sometimes feel like statues carved in marble, not fleshy, visceral human beings who’ve been scared, scarred ...

Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered Euro anthology of Crowell's Warner Brothers label recordings. He gained a well deserved reputation as one of America's best songwriters (while playing in Emmylou Harris' Hot Band), thanks to the chart successes of "Leavin' Louisiana In The Broad Daylight", "Til I Can Gain Control Again", "Voila! An American Dream", "Ashes By Now", "Heartbroke", "Shame On The Moon" and "Queen Of Hearts"...all by other artists! This set brings together his stellar versions along with other highlights of these important years in this monumental artist's career. 20 great tracks in all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice collection... August 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
It's the entire first album (with a mixed-up track listing) coupled with 5 cuts each from the 2nd and 3rd albums...the first album is a classic, the 2nd & 3rd were confused releases, where he was chasing an elusive stardom which only came later. So the cd overall sounds great and is "remastered" -- I'm no audiophile but the whole thing sounds excellent to me. Basically nice to have the 1st record mixed with choice cuts from the lesser follow-ups, apparently made for the U.K. audience, where Crowell has a bit of recently-attained success, and who may not have had access to these tunes before. In the U.S., where a cd of the first album is available, and a cd combining the 2nd and 3rd is too, it's less useful, but still attractively priced and a good "package" for Crowell fans who may have only caught up with him during his 21st century, well-deserved Americana-resurgence...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Gem May 18, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Rodney Crowell is perhaps one of the most over-looked and under-rated songwriters and performers of our time. His talent has shown through for many more mainstream performers, including his ex-wife, Roseanne Cash and Willie Nelson, and he has been the creative and production genius behind several gold-record winning albums. I have to say I am a long-time addict after my cousin, who worked for Warner Bros records 30+ years ago gave me a first pressing of some vinyl that didn't even have a label on it of Rodney's first album and then seeing him first perform live during his tour of that album a year later. It remains my favorite of his recordings. I purchased this specific album because it contained a major portion of the songs on that first CD, as well several other "hits" that he subsequently recorded over the years. His voice and the instrumental abilities of the musicians he has assembled to record with over the years still resonate today. This is a collection that you will keep in rotation on your CD player and say "wow -- I didn't know he wrote that one..."

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Country April 28, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
You can't go wrong with this one: 20 tracks that are all great tunes. The material on this disc covers the early years of Crowell's career, a fertile period when he was writing one gem after another. Quality country; songs that are so good that many other artists have since covered them. But do yourself a favor and listen to the originals. Crowell remains an unsung singer-songwriter, one whose music transcends the normal boundaries of country music.
